All the stress caused by the economic situation of the cultural centre and the retirement of the current President has had one positive result:  candidates to run the Association are stepping forward, and we hope to be able to announce a new Board after the open meeting on April 8th.  There are still a couple of posts to fill and if you are interested in joining the new team, please let us know as soon as possible. 
One of the most important challenges for the new team is to attract supporters.  The association needs more members, and is open to all who love culture and think it is important. As well as members, we are looking for people with vision and ideas.  Come to the open meeting on April 8th or visit us during April to talk about the possibilities.....
Join our mailing list by clicking HERE. Or leave a message on our answerphone, we will get back to you. 
If you want to help, please call or mail us:  - tel. (0034) 971 23 52 68

Saturday, March 8


As usual, Sa Taronja celebrates this day with a wonderful, participatory concert.

It is a day to be proud of the achievements of women and honour women's work and women's strength.
The "working women" who will be entertaining us on March 8 work with their voices, their imaginations and their bodies: Singers Sheela Gathright and Carmen Jaime, well known to Sa Taronja's fans, have once again come up with a new, different, highly creative and joyful interpretation of Women's Day. They are accompanied by violinist Mariyana Dimova and other musician friends, and also by the 20-women-strong group "Africa Alaró" who, with their African dance teacher Mamadou Diop, will be pulsing to the rhythms of percussionists N'gor, Abdoulaye und Luis, with the startling work of painter Mayte Bayón providing a graphic backdrop.
We invite you all to come and dance! - (men, too!)

Admission is € 10 and the music starts at 9 pm
Bar Sa Nau opens at 20 h for food and drinks (menu 15€)
Members discount 20% - Reservations 971 235 268

Our traditional spring onion feast.
Please book in advance!
We have already ordered thousands of calçots (the Catalan onions that look like leeks...) and delicious Romesco sauce, direct from its origins, the town of Valls in Catalunya.  We need to know if you are coming!
Last year we ordered enough for 80 people.... but 120 turned up, and we had to turn many away.  Don't let this happen to you!  The CALÇOTADA is one of the great events (some have qualified it as "the best event EVER!") and we want to make sure we have enough for everybody.  So please, reserve NOW!

The menu will be as authentic as ever, and requires days of preparation, so please let us know in good time if you plan to come.
The cost is 30€ per person (Children 12€), all included,
or 28€, pre-sale price (till Friday).

Calçots - up to 20 per person, grilled on the fire and served, hot, on roof-tiles.. .with the fabulous Romescu sauce.
Artichokes - roasted on the fire
Sausages from the grill, with white beans
Roast Lamb with salad and potatoes (or fish, if pre-ordered by Friday)
Water, wine (or soft drink) and bread.

Call us (971 235 268 - and LEAVE A CLEAR MESSAGE) or email us with your reservation.

The feast begins at 1.30 p.m. Reservation: 971 23 52 68

The physical and mental benefits of belly dance:
Apart from being an excellent physical workout that tones the body, belly dance works on the mind-body balance in a dynamic and enjoyable way, stimulates femininity and increases self-esteem.  As a cardiovascular exercise Oriental dance helps improve flexibility, strength and coordination, and is good way to lose weight and  improve posture. For pregnant women it is a great preparation for the birth, and allows them to recover their figures more quickly afterwards. Suitable for all ages and all body types.
Level: Beginners -  7€/class
